Receiver Randy Moss emerged from retirement to play for the 49ers this season. But if he manages to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, he won’t be walking off into the sunset with it like Michael Strahan or Jerome Bettis or John Elway.
Per a source with knowledge of Moss’s thinking, the future Hall of Famer plans to play at least one more year.
Absent a contract extension, Moss will become a free agent in March. His first retirement came two years ago, after he received not much interest on the open market. After a year away from the game, he decided to return — and he hasn’t complained once despite being a role player at best.
Of course, plans can change. But at least he’s not 95-percent and/or virtually certain to be back.
